Summary

Mordecai Ze’ev Feierberg was a Jewish Hebrew writer in Russia. He was attracted to enlightenment and to medieval Hebrew poetry. Feierberg was one of the announcers of symbolism in the Hebrew literature. He published short stories in the Hebrew newspapers, but his main work was the novel “Whither?” that was published shortly after his death. It follows the vacillations of a young man concerning faith, enlightenment, people and destiny. His answer to the question “Whither?” was the land of Israel. This work became central to Zionist thought. Feierberg died young of tuberculosis. (Translated from Hebrew Wikipedia by Omri Lernau)
